"bibliobimbo": pro-book pulp fiction posters

Thanks to Anne Bentley, our art curator at the Massachusetts Historical Society for this link. Helfond Book Gallery, Ltd. offers a series of images from the underbelly of the rare book world, otherwise known as "bibliopulp" posters riffing on pulp fiction book covers from the mid-twentieth century. I'm personally torn between the "Bibliobimbo" (pictured above), "Rare Book Tramp" and -- with a cover that would make Jack Harkness proud -- "They Made Me a Book Collector."

Happy Wednesday!
